After one season it seems superior to the previous one

In 1999, finding I had some time and money free, we decided to buy ducted evaporative air conditioning. As I was a Plumber in the UK, many years ago, I put it in with help from my Son for the heavy lifting. The Roof Unit was an Air Group Australia, Cool Breeze CO, which was then the largest domestic unit available. Except for two lots of replacement pads and two replacement electronic controls within the unit, it performed magnificently. Then in July, 2016, we decided to replace it with the Seeley LCQ 550. Being retired for several years, I employed a private firm, run by Darren Piwen, of Premium Air. The installation went amazingly well, and the electrical was completed a couple of days later. The wall control seems so much easier, although it took some time to get used to it. Last season, although we had some very hot days the unit maintained the house temperature constantly.

Brilliant Evaporative Cooler!

We have just installed a Breamar ducted evaporative cooler (model: LCB450) 6 to points in our home. The unit’s cooling power is simply amazing and we are very impressed how it performs, even on more moderately humid days where traditionally evaporative coolers have not been so useful. The unit is very well built and the installer was fastidious with fitting it perfectly into our home. The features on the remote are great with timer on and off settings and a smart little auto setting that allows us to set just the right amount of cooling. Love the fact this is maintenance free and I don’t have to get up and empty the unit at the end of summer. The auto weather seal is great also.
Cools our entire home with fresh cool air
The original fan unit was faulty. The faulty part was replaced under warranty.

Excellent Evaporative Unit

This unit works more effectively than our previous unit. The handy timer setting makes it convenient to set it to start cooling our house before we get home and we use the timer to switch it off too. The unit is quiet and efficient. We love it and highly recommend.
